The mayor and police chief of Sacramento are speaking out on the recurring protests happening downtown.
Sacramento Police Chief Daniel Hahn says officers have been dealing with the violent demonstrations at Cesar Chavez Park for weeks and adds "it is already out of control." Chief Hahn says the people who come out every weekend are usually from radical groups who are there to cause violence and officers have been attacked. As a result, Mayor Darrell Steinberg is planning to hold a public forum to allow community members to talk about the demonstrations and how each group is handled with police. Mayor Steinberg hopes to hold the public forum as early as next week.
